Re: Finish Basement Wall Ideas... Help


Clean out plug, shut off valves, etc, would be framed 4 sides and covered with clean piece of plywood, sheetrock with edge trim or store bought access panels with cover. Make the access big enough, min 12x12".

If you don't want a wall over the pipes, you could:
1. xps on the foundation
2. 1x3 cleats on the xps with tapcon screws
3. drywall over the cleats
4. 3 sided box over the pipe and put your shelf over the box.

Re: Finish Basement Wall Ideas... Help


Before you go to far, you'd be best to figure out exactly what the pipe is and if there is a possibility of re-routing it.
If it goes all the way around the basement, there must be a way to route it in a shorter run.

Can it be brought up higher to the ceiling, etc....

Op, did you test for moisture yet?

Your basement is wide open. Where does the high side of the 4" line go? What room is above it? Follow the pipe to its lowest point and where does it lead? Take some pictures of the high and low end of the pipe.

First, put your ear to the pipe and have Ms. Pinterest go around the house flushing toilets and running faucets/showers while you listen. Maybe you could be on the phone with her.

Then report back and post pictures of the entire pipe run from as far away as you can. I mean from beginning to end.
